Fruit Of The Spirit: A Collect On Gentleness

By the Rev. Dr. William J. Danaher, Jr., Rector

Gentle God
let me
hold others
with
the same
loving touch
that
you
hold me
make
my hands
nimble
enough
to cradle
broken
bodies
make
my heart
open
enough
to care for
suffering
souls
make
my eyes
clear
enough
to see
the struggle
behind
each face.
Amen.
